Every year thousands of performers and eager culture vultures descend on Edinburgh for the Fringe Festival. The programme of events includes everything from big names in the world of entertainment, which this year includes Lucy Porter and Stewart Lee, to tiny theatre start-ups looking for their big break. From Friday, Edinburgh will be filled to the brim with cultural offerings, in a famously eclectic mix of venues. Don’t miss out.
Only God Forgives
Opening this weekend, the latest Ryan Gosling *squeal* film marks a return to the awesome partnership between the actor and Nicolas Winding Refn, the director of Drive. A dark crime thriller set in Bangkok, Only God Forgives was nominated for the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes film festival. If you’re a fan of hyper stylised cinematography, a gritty plot line and, let’s be honest, Ryan Gosling’s face, then this film is a must-see this weekend.
Opens August 2 in cinemas nationwide
